Thinking about visitng Norway? I would love to tell you about not popular but really worth visiting cities. They are perfect for running away from noisy cities. Hiking lovers will be delighted as well. And maybe some skiing/ snowboarding? Horse riding on wild, empty valleys and rocky roads? Finding Northern Light? Watching fjords? Let me introduce you some cities in Norway which will really encharm you!
Charming snowy city, the largest of Norway’s northern cities. It has a modern mix of outdoor activities, also called Norway’s gateway to the Arctic. There is no better place to discover the beauty of the frozen land. The main attraction here is harsh climate and beautiful, dangerous nature. I’m sure One of the newest attraction in there is pop-up ice hotel, which perfectly suits this ever- winter land. What to do in Tromso?
- spot the whales
- experience the Arctic wildlife- Polar Fjord
- chase Northern Lights
- visit Polar Museum
- pray in Arctic Cathedral
- enter Alpinpark
Well, it’s one of my favourite cities and I bet you won’t be bored i here. Of course, if you dare.
It’s a small tourist village in western part of Norway. You will find here many scenic views, for example one of Norway’s most photographed viewpoints- the port. Another place worth mentioning is Geirangerfjord– one of the most beautiful mainland fjords.
.What to do in Geiranger? My ideas:
- see Norway’s second largest cruise port
- majestic fjord cliffs
- go for a hike in the mountains, and find there abandoned mountain farms.
- watch Porpoises
- Try rafting,
- admire The Geiranger Fjord (Norwegian: Geirangerfjorden) and
- thundering waterfalls “Seven Sisters”, “Bridal Veil” and “Suitor”
Located in the traditional district of Nordfjord Stryn is a place of profound lake, blue glaciers, majestic mountains and vast valleys. For both relaxing and active time. I would advise to join a rope team walking up on a glacier. Briksdalsbreen is one of Norway’s most popular tourist-attractions. Alternative way to see it is a boat-trip and a visit to the glacier. In the same day you can also try summer skiing in Stryn Sommerski resort, and enjoy white sandy beaches. In the same place! I would advise to walk to the Segestad – old mountainfarm.
I hope my little advice will encourage you to see some more than just Oslo, Stavanger and Bergen. Norway is a beautiful country with glaciers, mountains and waterfalls just waiting for you to discover their arctic beauty. Natural wonders aree waiting!
